I think we've all had (or currently have) a spot in our home that "really wasn't working." Megan's was in her home office. At The Homes I Have Made, Megan is showing us how she took an Ikea filing cabinet that was just collecting clutter, added a hidden printer and laminator along with some fabulous personal touches, and turned her awkward bit of wall space "into the gem of the room!"
Gilly found this vintage cabinet in the back of a shed. She says of it's sadly neglected condition, " Someone at one point in time had used it as target practice….its had patches of dried mud all over it like someone had thrown mud balls at it!" Gilly shares the makeover she gave this diminutive piece at Colour Saturated Life.
"My 72-year-old dad found this china cabinet curbside," says Amy of High Style ReStyle. "My dad doesn't get excited at much but from the beginning it held an attachment for him. He couldn't get over someone discarding such a high-quality piece of furniture," she explains. His excitement inspired her to turn the old cabinet into a special surprise for Dad.
This little cabinet was discovered in the attic by Camille of Gustave & Voltaire when she moved into her home. "When I saw it I realized how beautiful it could look," Camille tells us. "Like in that 80's movie when the plain secretary transforms into a bomb by letting her hair down and taking off her glasses." Ha!
